Bilobed Lower Pole Nodule Thyroid
Is it possible to show signs of hyper thyroidism with a TSH level of 0.75? palipitations, constant hunger, .is this physcosamatic? Multi nodular thyroid
Throid nodules. Upper right lobe hot, lower right lobe cold 3.4cm. Does that mean I have hyper and hypo thyriodism at the same time?
No, the activity: Of individual nodules on a thyroid scan may not, in and of themselves, imply hyper or hypothyroidism, which are diagnoses based on systemic symptoms and blood levels. Certainly, however, an autonomous hot nodule could result in hyperthyroidism. Cold nodules have a higher chance of malignancy (although still relatively low), and biopsy may be indicated. ...Read more
I had u/s on thyroid and it found 2 nodules. Both on left - 1 at interpolar region and 1 at lower left pole. Where are these locations? Close together?
Who did the diagnosis, you and confirmed by a DR.?
You require a Thyroid scan with 1131, and a fine needle aspiration biopsy.
About 1/10 % of nodules may became cancerous, therefore an endocrinologist should see you. Medicine is advancing by leaps and bounds but it can still be difficult to determine if a thyroid nodule is cancerous or not. Now, people with thyroid nodules can benefit from the latest diagnostic technology. Ask your doctor about Afirma® Thyroid FNA Analysis, a proven solution that may dramatically affect how your nodule is diagnosed and treated. ...Read more

Heterogeneous hypoechoic nodules in bilateral thyroid lower pole, measuring 1.7 CM on the right and 0.5 CM on the left. Is it can be cancerous?
Please explain "left lobe of thyroid is 4.6x1.9x1.5cm & contains 9mm hypoechoic nodule at lower pole w/ small cystic component" mildly complicated. TY?
What to do if I had a ultrasound done and was informed that What to do if I had a hard nodule on the lower pole of the right thyroid lobe.?
Do all nodules caused by Hashimotos have similar characteristics? Do they have a greater or lower chance of being cancerous as other thyroid nodules?
Recent US shows right side of thyroid a large nodule 3.9 x 2.1 x 2.3 cm. L Mid to lower left lobe shows a discrete hypoechoic heterogeneous nodule 2.
Thyroid nodule: If you were not seen by an endocrinologist, you should be referred to one for possible biopsy. You should also have a thyroid panel done. ...Read more
Thyroid lower right lobe nodule 3.4x2.6x2.2cm and cold. FNA is undetermained signicance, some collod w/predominance of microfollicles. Watch or remove?
Clinical correlation: Since the fine needle aspiration (small sample which may not be representative) is not conclusive, it is necessary that your physician weighs the options based on other clinical symptoms. However, with a large mass like this, it is probably wise to excise the mass with adequate margin an have it examined completely by the pathologist ...Read more
Where is the posterior right thyroid? Is it the same place as the lower right? Two ultrasounds for thyroid nodule 3 years apart. Are these the same location?
Thyroid: Yes. Probably more lateral inferior area.Get a more detailed answer ›
If I had a thyroid scan that read: left lobe of gland is mildly enlarged at 5.8cm x 1.7 x 2.2. There is a avascular 3 mm hypoechoic nodule in the lower pole of the left lobe. How would I know if it was " hot or cold"?
What you are describing are ultrasound results. A hypoechoic nodule of 3 mm of size is nearly 100% benign.
The only reason to assess if a nodule is overactive (hot) or underactive (cold) is in general hyperthyroidism. If the nodule is hot, then it can be the target of therapy. This is done through a i-131 uptake and scan. ...Read more
I had an ultrasound of my thyroid that states thyroid has multiple subcentimeter nodules but is homogeneous in echotexture with no mass, nodule, or other abnormality, Hypoechoic nodule at the lower pole on right 3x3x3mm, cystic nodule in the interpol?
I would take the results and follow up with Endocrinology or a Ear Nose and Throat specialist
Should also have complete Thyroid labs done. Need more information about your medical history, meds, and other family history you have.
Continue to follow up and you will get your situation resolved and need not worry. ...Read more
A 0.3 x 0.5 x 0.3 CM hypoechoic cystic nodule with punctate internal echo is noted in the lower pole of the right lobe of the thyroid gland.?
Small nodule: Often cystic thyroid nodules can have denser regions called "punctate foci". If the nodule is not cystic those can also be microcalcifications, a finding that increases the risk of thyroid cancer. The key though is that the nodule is very small and therefore requires monitoring only, no matter what its nature may be. ...Read more
My TSH is on the high side of normal and I take levothyroxine. Am I at lower risk for developing thyroid nodules as a result?
Recent thyroid ultrasound with results of hyperechoic nodule at the left lower thyroid, and heterogeneous echotexture. What happens next?
Most likely: Your doctor will do FNA (Fine needle aspiration) biopsy. It is simple safe and painless, analysis will give diagnosis ...Read more
I woke a few days ago with pain and swelling on the lower front of neck. I can feel restriction wben swallowing. Could my thyroid nodules be reason?
It is unlikely:
It is unlikely for a thyroid nodule to cause pain and swelling.
Pain/swelling in the midline front of the neck may represent thyroiditis, inflamed thyroid gland, or superinfected thyroglossal cyst.
However, if you feel any lumps that are getting larger, or have been in your neck for longer than 2 weeks, see your doctor right away, as this can represent infected or possibly cancerous lymph nodes! ...Read more
Ana positive 1:32 speckled pattern negative tier. What does that mean? And could it be related to thyroid nodule in left lower lobe? Homogenous?
Hello I have been diagnosed with a small module on my left lower lung. A low density lesion on my liver and a 6mm nodule on my right thyroid lobe.?
See below: Such multiple findings as you describe are not uncommon on various imaging studies such as CT scans of the chest, abdomen, pelvis that include the thyroid, lung, liver, and kidneys where small sub-centimeter (<10 mm) nodules are commonly noted which are most often benign and clinically insignificant but which often deserve a follow-up study in 6-12 months. You should discuss this with your doctor. ...Read more
Mri & ultrasound found retrosternal, mixed density, inhomogeneous, moderately vascular complex thyroid nodule from mid to lower pole. What's it mean?
A word of caution.: Many physicians perform fine-needle aspiration biopsy; the use of ultrasound will increase the likelihood of biopsying the correct location within the thyroid. There is a significant false negative rate of biopsy even with ultrasound, and the intrepretation of the biopsy varies a great deal based on the experience of the pathologist. Do not base any medical decision solely on the biopsy results. ...Read more
Is it poss. Cancer? Us results thyroid nodule: solid, heterogeneous & isoechoic nodule w/in the mid to lower right lobe, 4.2cm, increas. Vascularity
TSH 0.6 (0.4-4.0) Calcium, phosphate, adjusted calcium all very bottom of normal. I have a small thyroid nodule does this account for my lower scores
Possible: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, depending on the nature of the nodule it is possible that a nodule made of c cells of the thyroid may cause the calcium to be low. ...Read more
I have a 3.5cm thyroid nodule with lower neck swelling, but normal TSH, T3, T4 blood levels. What could be causing this?
Goiter or Cancer?: A Thyroud mass can be benign in which case it is called a Goiter. There is about 10% risk that it can be a cancer. You should see your physician for further trests such as an ultrasound and or a Needle biopsy. Blood tests only show if your thyoid functions are normal or not. Since these are normal, you now need to go to the next step of further evaluation to find the cause of your Thyroid nodule. ...Read more
I have a low TSH lower than range I have nodules on my under active thyroid doctor reduced euthyrox from 100 to 50 feeling tired with fast heart beat?
On left side of lower neck, a small nodule under skin (lymph node?), it is soft, same size. Not protruding. No pain. Any way of knowing what it is?
Sounds like: Lymph node, but it could be something else. IF it is truly a lymph node, lF is less than 1 cm, and IF it is not enlarging, it is probably nothing. But that is a lot of IFs. Best to show it to your doctor. ...Read more

It depends: A, "not active" nodule of the thyroid, also referred to as a, "cold nodule" was classically one which did not trap various radioactive tags on nuclear thyroid scanning. Classically, a solitary cold nodule was felt to be at a 50% risk for harboring a malignancy. As a result, such nodules are often subjected to needle biopsy, frequently under ultrasound guidance, for further evaluation. ...Read more
Depends on size: You might not feel anything if it's small. Otherwise, it could feel like a lump, a node and if it's big enough, it can feel like a growth/mass on your neck. If it's liquid, like a cyst, it could be soft. If it's a solid growth, it could be rubbery and if it's calcified, it could have a rock/hard feel to it. ...Read more
Varies: Nodules may be visible lumps beneath the surface or invisible ones in the body of the organ, that may be palpable by trained fingers. Ultrasound & radionuclide scans are used to visualize & help characterize them. See doc for thyroid blood tests & follow-up imaging studies if needed. ...Read more
No: Thyroid cancers start as thyroid cancers and form cancerous nodules. Benign nodules start benign and do not become malignant. ...Read more
Indeterminant: You did not mention about findings of ultrasound and thyroid scan. Please have fresh look with experienced endocrinologist, expert pathologist and thyroid surgeon. You can have slide read by other thyroid pathologist or have second fna by experience endocrinologist. 25-50% cancer rate. Complex nodules must be watched closely. Please read thyroid nodule at http://doctorrajput. Com thanks. ...Read more
Thyroid nodules: Thyroid nodules are common, especially when ultrasound is used. Because of the the size limits are commonly used to determine who needs a biopsy, along with other factors such as personal and family history, and other characteristics. Most nodules less than 1 cm do not need to be biopsied. Follow-up at that size might also not be required very frequently. ...Read more
